CLASS POEM 



LIFE'S DOORWAY 

Though the years have passed and the time lias come 

For a brief review of the tilings we've done, 

We dare not long on life's threshold stand. 

But must answer the call of its beckoning hand. 

For it isn't a door that we've shut behind, 
Rut a portal thing wide for a task assigned, 
Nor is it a hack on life we've turned, 
But a face to the future, deeply concerned. 

So we pass through life's doorway, with heads held high. 
And a faith in the future that must not die. 
Willi "Deeds Not Words" to light our way. 
Undaunted and fearless, we face a new day. 

— Richard .1. Asquith

CLASS HISTORY 



^JL^ N the fall of 1945 when we entered tiiis high school, the Second 
World War had ended. Less than a month before school opened 
the Japanese had submitted to unconditional surrender. They and 
the rest of the world were appalled at the devastating possibilities of the 
atom bond) which had been used against (hem in the final attack. At last, 
after four years of bitter warfare most of our boys came home. Those 
that did not had paid for our chance of brighter tomorrows. 

At school, life went according to a daily routine to which gradually 
we became accustomed. Before long we held the fall election, our first 
class activity. When the votes had been counted. Leo Lutz was our class 
president; Vincent Pizzano, vice-president; .Marilyn Ilartwell. secretary; 
and Catherine Cole, treasurer. Donald Lee and Mary Owen wen- our 
student council members. 

Later in the fall came the Sophomore Reception. We, very humble 
sophomores, were received officially by the most honorable seniors. They 
condescended to take part even in the entertainment. Rrefreshments wen' 
served and general dancing was enjoyed to the music of Sydney Smith's 
Serenaders. 

Academically our struggles with Latin and Algebra were the mem- 
orable events of the winter season. In the spring social activities took our 
attention as we served on various committees in preparation for our class 
parly. After considerable work the hall was decorated, refreshments and 
music for dancing were ready and the evening for the Sophormore Party 
had arrived. We had the best entertainment and the most delicious re- 
freshments; we danced to the niiisir of the best hands on record. Of 
course, everybody had a successful evening. 

Soon the summer vacation followed. Then fall came and we were 
juniors. As juniors we saw something about which we had heard, but 
which we had not experienced: a new party came into power. We elected 
a new class president. Russell Yosc was our choice. Herbert llartwtll 
became vice-president; Marilyn Ilartwell. secretary; Catherine Cole, treas- 
urer. Mary Owen. Donald Lee and James Yokley served on the student 
council as our representatives. 

Following the election came the Junior Party. In the Central School 
hall we met to enjoy an entertainment, refreshments, and good dance 
music provided by Tommy Sousa and his orchestra. Several weeks later, 
class rings were presented for our consideration and eventually we chose 
one of solid gold. On the front it has a castle symbolizing the high school. 
Also, it has the name of the school and the year of our graduation. With 
these shiny new rings on our lingers, we became the envy of the lowly 
sophomores who had not yet chosen their rings.

(->* 



Near the close of our junior year we were called out on the lawn. At 
this assembly Betty- Jeanne Yorshis, for excellency in American history, 
was awarded the Washington and Franklin medal given by the Massachu- 
setts Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Mary Owen and 
William Schenk received honorable mention and were awarded history 
books. Thus ended our junior year. 

Last fall when we returned, the school seemed empty. There was 
something missing; it was the seniors, but we had taken their places. The 
halls seemed to be overrun with green sophomores. Everywhere there 
were new faces, but we would soon become familiar with these children 
and give them a reception. 

First, however, we held our class election. Russell Vose was re- 
elected president; Herbert Hartwell, vice-president; Marilyn Hartwell, 
secretary; and Catherine Cole, treasurer. For the student council we 
picked Donald Lee, Janet Leslie, Elaine Nader, and Mary Owen. 

Then came try-outs for the senior play. From a large group a cast 
was chosen. Rehearsals got under way, the scenery was put into shape, 
and arrangements were made for pupils to bring in candy to be sold the 
night of the play. On that evening the cast, who had been coached by 
Miss Moira Higgins, gave a fine performance. "We Shook the Family 
Tree"co-starred daring Don Smith as "Freddie" and Janet Leslie as "Hil- 
degarde." They were supported by an all-star cast. There was one cas- 
ualty, but thanks to penicillin, Dave Baker, our able curtain technician, 
completely recovered from the case of pneumonia which he had con- 
tracted the night of the play. 

Near the first of the year we held our senior party at the Central 
School hall. From a wide variety of talented students we chose our en- 
tertainers, who put on a fine show, following which we had refreshments. 
Music for dancing was played by the "Best Bands in the Land." 

On January 30 we were all sorry to hear that Mr. John D. Byrne, one 
of our favorite teachers, had passed away. Besides being one of the most 
patient math teachers, the boys found him to be a fine track coach. Their 
records speak for his able coaching. 

In February we put on a magazine drive to defray the cost of the 
year book. The excellent job which the seniors before us bad done made 
it difficult for us to coax our parents to subscribe to a magazine five or ten 
years hence; however, if you have noticed a tired, worn look on your 
postman's face, it may be the result of carrying extra magazines to our 
new subscribers. 

One night in March, after weeks of incessant drilling, the Cadet 
Corps gave its forty-second annual ball. The featured prize drill was won 
by Company "C," little Bonnano contributing a great deal to the show. 
After the medals were awarded to the winning cadets, Major Jason Leb- 
owitz led the grand march with his beautiful partner, Estelle Nager. Then 



45 



Edward F. Searles High School 19 4 8 



the line hroke out into a waltz. Tony Brown's orchestra played all the 
music. 

Near the end of each year the Samuel Adams Chapter of the Daugh- 
ters of the American Revolution and the Brigadier General Frye Chapter 
of the Sons of the American Revolution award medals for good citizen- 
ship to the girl and the boy chosen by the faculty according to the pro- 
visions of the award. In our sophomre year the medals were given to 
Betty-Jeanne Yorshis and Leo Lutz. In our junior year Catherine Cole 
and Leo Lutz received these awards. These medals wen I to the same 
pupils in their senior year. 

Last Friday night we held the final social function of our high school 
careers, the From. The girls were dressed in formal gowns and their es- 
corts wore tuxedos. Almost everyone attended this grand affair. Roland 
Russell's orchestra played the music for dancing. 

With graduation our high school days come to an end and we enter 
life with "Deeds not Words" as our motto.

CLASS PROPHECY 

FLASH — Class of "48" Holds Gala Reunion at New Memorial Gym. 

The tenth reunion of the class of 1948 was held last evening in the 
new Methuen Memorial Gym huilt hy James Naylor and William Schenk. 
One hundred and thirty one alumni turned out for the gala festivities. 
Governor Donald Lee opened the program by kissing Methuen's favorite 
pin-up girl, Marilyn Hartwell. The town's leading photographers, Arthur 
Barraclough and Eddie Wilczynski, were on hand to take exclusive pic- 
tures which appear above this article. 

At this time your roving reporters, Tommy Enright and Mary Owen 
went busily to work interviewing the alumni. 

Al Roby, president of the Bango Bubble Gum Co. whose slogan is 
"Does it stick?— Does it stretch ?— Does it snap?— It DOES— It's Bango!" 
arrived with two of his secretaries, Marilyn Herbert and Virginia Shripsa. 
Al insists on two secretaries. One for each knee. Accompanying Al were 
his two supersaleswomen, Jake Graham and Mary Janetti, who have 
promised to show Kenny Ramskill's football team and Eddie Quinlan's 
track team how to blow bubbles in their opponents' faces. 

Looking about the vast auditorium we spied Methuen's own Louella 
Parsons, Joyce Polland, and joined her in interviewing Stretch Nagle and 
Curly Thomson, who are now very successful professional basketball 
players. The interview was cut short when a group of adoring basketball 
fans led by Winnie Wrigley, Phyllis Voter, and Barbara DeGaspe be- 
seiged Stretch and Curly for their autographs. We sincerely hope the 
boys were able to survive this battle. 

Charles Jacobs and Frank Haigh, those two pilots who broke the 
record for the trip around the world were interviewed with Gerald Haw- 
thornthwaite and Victor Mailloux, co-owners of the new television com- 
pany in Methuen square. In one corner of the gym James Weeks and 
William Rushforth, those two scientists who are working on the improve- 
ment of the Atomic Bomb, were talking to radio commentator, Richard 
Asquith. We hope these scientists use their discoveries to good ad- 
vantage. 

President of the Methuen National Bank, David Baker, and Ruben 
Ehramjian, his private business accountant, were there with Raymond 
Busta and Thomas McCarron, salesman for Robert Bennett's and Wil- 
liam Jurek's new frozen foods company. 

June DelSelva Arleen Farrow and Stella DeRoche, those lovely sales- 
girls at Shirley Richardson's and Helen Saba's hosiery shop were there 
with those well known bathing beauties, Beverly Dennis and Barbara 
Forster. 

Paul Starta and Mitchell Sevajian, owners of the new car manufac- 
turing company were also there. Their company should be a huge success.

Edward F. Scarles High School 19 4 8 



Moving to our right \vc noticed Warren Lumb and Leo Lutz, invent- 
ors of a rocket to the moon, trying to persuade Pete Pizzano and Bobby 
Cooke to make the test flight. 

In the center of the gym were Lorraine Demers, Theresa Derstephan- 
ian and Doris Eherhardt, secretaries at Sam DiGloria's shoe firm, and 
Civil Service workers, Enid Lichtman and Yvonne ilajjar. 

Right across from this new gym is Robert Sheehan's and Donald 
Bedard's "Ice Cream Castle." Before the reunion, dress designers Alice 
Riley and Catherine Gumb were enjoying banana splits prepared by Mary 
Fluet and Anna Wurzbacher, those two pretty waitresses. 

We were pleasantly surprised to meet thai eminent physician Michael 
Zinno and his staff of ellieient nurses. Dorothy Chute, .loan Perrault. Rita 
Carnevale, and Anne Girgenti. 

Standing near the stage was Herbert Hartwell, founder of the Hart- 
well School of Dance and his assistants Virginia Bourque, Marilyn Booth. 
Barbara Wilson and Doreen Garlick. Sun Patti and George Hobbs, own- 
ers of the "Cars of Distinction" Auto Company, are the prize rumba 
pupils of the school. 

Roselie Cosia, Bona /aft. Marjorie Merchant and Evelyn Saba, those 
pretty salesgirls at Arthur Bailey's and Bruce Poster's department store 
were there with .lean Collier and Shirley Collier, co-owners of Collier's 
Beauty Shop. Their employees, Nancy Bracked. Kathleen I.inehan. Louise 
Batchelder and Virginia Dawson were also enjoying themselves. 

As a novelty feature, .lason Lebowitz, the radio comedian, arranged 
to bring the entire staff of his program to the reunion. At <S:.'*0 the pro- 
gram was heard over the Nit Wit Network. His singing star Buss Vose 
and his petite vocalist Louise Hill appeared on the show along with those 
dramatic stars Janet Leslie and Boh Hill. Mike llaykal's orchestra played 
for the occasion. As his guest artist. Gertrude Benaud played the violin 
accompanied by pianist Shirley Chateauneuf. Also, vocalist Eleanor 
Bembis contributed to the success of the program. 

In Yuki's skit "Ignorance Is Bliss" Catherine Cole and Betty-Jeanne 

Yorshis. two social workers, were lied for first place. Radio executives 
Tommy Sifferlen and Ethel Martin wen extremely pleased with the pro- 
gram. After the broadcast the reunion continued with all its gaiety. 

In the rear of the gym were Eugene (iross and Jimmy Yokley, baseball 
and basketball coaches of Methuen High. In the interview, they both pre- 
dicted two more undefeated seasons. 

Those two pianists, Stephen Dehl and Dominic Yiglione. who are the 
main attractions at Norman Tunnel's and Allan Smith's night club were 
interviewed along with Barbara Clark and Belly Hitchmoth, waitresses 
at Yolanda Netti's and Ruth Bark's new restaurant. 

Our two gym instructors Elaine and Mildred Zenker were talking 
over plans for their coming demonstration with dress designers Evelyn 
Sterndale, Joan Child and Joan Tow nsend.

Socialite Cynthia Hyder and lovely models Norma Richards, May 
Bistany and Mitzi Messina were chatting with trumpeters William Man- 
dycz and Ronald Robichaud. Robert Mastin, owner of that new Holly- 
wood theatre and his two pretty cashiers, Betty Yemma and Gloria Russo, 
were also at this reunion. Bob's leading man, Donald Smith, and his 
leading lady, Lydia Robichaud were also interviewed. 

We noticed Dick Nolet and Gilbert Tallmadge telling fish stories to 
Gina Peate, Geraldine Pica, and Philomena Simone, who work at Edwin 
Traub's and Gerald Winthrop's "Strictly Stinkers Flower Shop. Dick was 
calmly stating that one of his basses was as tall as pretty secretaries Elsie 
Vogler and Theresa White put together. 

The reunion was a gay affair and a good time was had by all the 
alumni.

IVY ORATION 



\_X SSEMBLED here for the customary class day exercises, we, the 
WE£ class of 19 18, are preparing to leave high school days behind and 
=*** go forth to our individual destinies. The time has arrived for the 
traditional planting of the ivy, which symbolizes trustworthiness and the 
spirit of friendship. Let us, as in the future we encounter our respective 
responsibilities, strive to he friendly and worthy of trust. 

A shoot of ivy grows steadfastly, climbing step by step Hie long way to 
the top. As the ivy thrives, its tendrils reach mil and the suction discs 
affix themselves to the nearest stones and crevices. Using the obstructions 
which mark its trail, the ivy flourishes, ascending higher and higher. 

Have we, too, used our "stumbling blocks" to aid is building our future, 
or do we become dejected when all fails to go as we have planned? Do 
we surmount disheartening barriers which impede our course to emerge 
with a more maturely developed character, and a perseverance to cope 
with whatever may come our way? We must not become sullen, as a 
spoiled child does, when our endeavors fail; hut we must push staunchly 
onward, exerting all our power to triumph over the discouragements 
which befall us. Thus do we prove ourselves worthy of trust; and if we 
do not yield to what appears to he Hie inevitable, we can. like the ivy. use 
the very obstructions which hinder our progress to arrive at the height 
of our ambitions. 

The road to success is not one to lie tread thoughtlessly; only through 
diligence and fortitude can we gain our desired ends. Hut what does it 
mean to be successful? Some say that a large hank account denotes suc- 
cess; others believe that it is indicated by high social status. Neither of 
these two factors is necessarily characteristic of success; for in defining 
the word to its true depth, we find that to he successful means that we are 
content with our lives, and feel well recompensed for the way in which 
we have constructed them. Nut all of us are destined to he great slates- 
men, distinguished professional men or women, not other celebrities. The 
ivy has not the majesty of a rose, nor the ethereal delicacy of an orchid; 
but its success lies in its simple sturdiness, and in the way in which its 
classic beauty of form and its coloring harmonize with its environment. 
Our success also may lie in the harmony with which we adapt ourselves 
to our surroundings, and in the manner in which we meet the obligations 
of friendship. Our aspirations can he attained much more effectively if 
we are considerate of others, have a pleasing personality and cheerful 
countenance, and are willing to do our share in whatever may arise. Peo- 
ple who are self-centered and concerned only with their own welfare 
seldom achieve the satisfaction of true success. They are too much ab- 

50 



19 4 8 Edward F. Searles High School 



sorbed in themselves and enveloped in their own troubles — too greedy for 
materialistic advancement to enjoy what they have already procured and 
to be conscious of the wonder and charm of the world about them. Let 
us, as we look ahead to the uncertain future, obtain the full measure of 
success. 

Upon our graduation from high school we will not be remaining sta- 
tionary. Whether the next step will be a continuance of education or the 
seeking of a position is left for us to decide. Everything and everyone 
must go forward; there is no turning back. We have been like young 
shoots of ivy — planted in the good soil of sound educational principles, 
and carefully nurtured so that we now have a strong foundation upon 
which to build. Our schooling has been a preliminary training to prepare 
us for what lies ahead, and we ought to be thankful for the advantages 
it affords. 

Let us, therefore, using the ivy as a pattern, cling to our firm founda- 
tions, grasp each new opportunity determinedly, and, undaunted, grow 
upward to loftier heights — new and greater ideals.

SOCIAL EVENTS 

SOPHOMORE RECEPTION— The first social event of the year was the 
Sophomore Reception, at which the seniors welcomed the sophomores to 
M.H.S. Dancing and entertainment featured the program. 

SENIOR PLAY— We presented the Senior Class Play "We Shook the 
Family Tree" on December 12th, at the Central School Hall. A large 
crowd attended this social affair which had them in stitches most of the 
time. We shall never forget the antics of Hoi) and Jimmy and die "Love 
Letters" distributed by seven-year-old Paige. 

SENIOR PARTY— The next social event was the Senior Party. Dan- 
cing plus excellent entertainment produced a good lime for everyone. 

MILITARY HALL— The most colorful evenl of die year, die Military 
Ball, was held March 17th in the gaily decorated and crowded Central 
School Hall. The Cadets, dressed in their neat blue uniforms, and the 
girls in their beautiful gowns presented a spectacular picture. Dancing 
followed the military drills to complete a most enjoyable evening. 

GIRLS' A. A. EXHIBITION— On the evening of April 30, Miss Dorothy

thrilled as the girls performed their routines. This exciting event was 
rounded out with dancing. 

BAND CONCERT AND DANCE— On the evening of May 21 all roads 
led to the Central School Hall, where our first class band presented its 
annual Band Concert and Dance. Needless to say. a great evening of ex- 
cellent music and fun was enjoyed by all who attended. 

SENIOR PROM— The climactic social event of the year was held on 
June 11th in the Central School Hall. The gaiety and happiness of the 
event was wonderful, considering the fact that we all realized that this 
was our last school social event.

THE M. H. S. BAND 



\J UR Band was one of the best bands ever at Methuen High School. 
|/@jjd This year they were outfitted in their new uniforms, which cer- 
tainly are good looking. The band added much life and color to 
many school activities, and Mr. Harold L. McDonnell is to be congrat- 
ulated for the superb job he does in keeping it balanced and well trained. 
Under "Mac's" able direction, the band has been very successful at the

M. H. S. CADET CORPS 

|C5 HE Methuen Hi S h School Cadet Corps of 1948, led by Major Jason 
jm Lehowitz, was much improved over former years. All cadets were 
■■^ issued khaki colored uniforms for drill. This made the corps much 
more impressive and colorful. The 12nd Annual Military Ball was held 
on March 19. The hall was beautifully decorated, and the grand march 
was the feature of the evening. Company "C," headed by Captain Vin- 
cent Pizzano, captured the drill squad prize. 

The final event of the year was the prize drill. Medals were awarded 
to the individual winners. Discharges were then awarded to the officers 
who passed in review for the last time.

SENIOR CLASS PLAY 



o 



N December 12th we presented our Senior Class Play, "We Shook 
the Family Tree." It was a hilarious three-act comedy in which 
Freddy Shermer, played by Donald Smith, wore knickers. The 

cast included Janet Leslie as Hildegarde; Donald Smith as Freddy, Bob 

Hill as Hildegarde's father, Mr. Dolson; Catherine Cole as Mrs. Dolson; 

Virginia Bourque as Sally; Russell Vose as Boh; Donald Lee as Jimmy; 

Cynthia Hyder as Paige; Catherine Gumb as Ellie-May, Louise Hill as Jill; 

Leo Lutz as Mr. Shermer; and Marilyn Herhert as Mrs. Shermer. 

Under the able direction of Miss Moira Higgins, the cooperation of the 
Cast, and the help of the committee members, the play was a great suc- 
cess. We shall never forget the scene in which Russell Vose, in his bath- 
ing suit, tackled Leo Lutz.

THE HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA

Mr. Walter Pearson, enjoyed a very successful season. The mem- 
bers thoroughly enjoyed playing at the school assemblies and be- 
tween the acts at the senior play, and their music added much to our en- 
joyment of these affairs. We are indeed grateful tor the services rendered 
by this group of students.

CLASS DAY PAGEANT 



HE traditional Class Day Pageant of the Edward F. Searles High 
School was held on June 14th. The spacious green lawn in front 
of the school, and the school itself, with its picturesque lines, 
created a perfect setting for this never-to-be-forgotten ceremony. From 
the entrance of the Queen and King, escorted by the court, to the reces- 
sional of the seniors, this day leaves a deep and lasting impression in the 
hearts of the graduates of 1948.

BASEBALL, 1948 



^J HE 1948 baseball squad reported to Coach Fred Rostron on March 
31st. The nucleus of the team is formed by juniors and seniors, 
although the majority of the candidates were sophomores. Me- 
thuen is a member of the Suburban League and there is great hope that 
Methuen will bead the list of teams at the end of the season. Our players 
will meet the following opponents: Punebard, Johnson, Wilmington, 
Tewskbury, Chelmsford, and Howe H. S., Billerica.

BOYS' BASKETBALL 



\^ HE Methuen High School basketball squad led by capable captain 

SSgBj llerbcrl Hartwell. completed a very successful season. Under the 
supervision of Mr. Fred Rostron the Methuen hoopsters netted 
twelve wins against eight defeats. "Curly" Thomson and Edward 
Quinlan were the high scorers for the starting lineup. The brilliant de- 
fensive work of Herbie Hartwell and "Tweedy" Pirozek staved off many 
an opposing team's attack during the course of the season. Methuen 
rooters should be very proud of their basketball team.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL 



(^) HE girls' basketball team, captained by Mildred Zenker, had a season 
consisting of seven games. Although the girls showed great en- 
thusiasm and sportsmanship, their record showed four defeats 
and three victories. The second team, however, had a wonderful 
season, being undefeated throughout. This team shows much promise 
for the future. Girls' basketball is increasing in popularity in the High 
School, and we hope this interest is continued by the coming classes. We 
wish next year's team, with Dorothy Wilkins and Mary Donavan as co- 
captains, best wishes for a victorious serson.
